Attorneys - Overview
Although the main purpose of SettlementCentral.Com is to educate injured persons in self-help and do-it-yourself methods of obtaining the best possible settlement of their injury claims, there are times when using an attorney is part of that best resolution. SettlementCentral.Com recognizes that an injured person is often best served by seeking an attorney's help when those injuries are substantial and/or permanent, when there are complex issues related to liability and/or damages, or when that person feels the need for such help for any reason at all.
Coming soon, as part of our extensive Expansion Program, SettlementCentral.Com will offer its subscribed members access to our directory of independent personal injury attorneys with whom we have negotiated a special discounted fee for consultation. Some of those attorneys are also available for representation. Independent attorneys listed in SettlementCentral.Com's directory are paid separately by the member at the special member rate of $_____ per hour for consultation, plus a one-time $_____ service charge to SettlementCentral.Com, which then has no further part in the communications between the member and the attorney. After the first hour, which is paid through SettlementCentral.Com in conjunction with the service charge, any additional work agreed upon between the attorney and the member are paid directly to the attorney. Any long-distance telephone charges, fax charges, mail or other delivery expenses will be paid by the member.
As a condition of being listed in our directory, these independent attorneys have agreed to charge no more than $_____ per hour for consultation with our members. Further, these independent attorneys have agreed to discounted fees to our members for representation on their claims, if such representation is agreed upon between themselves and the member, as follows:
Such hiring of an independent attorney through SettlementCentral.Com has no effect on the member's use of our Web site, to which the member still has full access. In many cases, use of the information available on SettlementCentral.Com will mean that the member has already prepared a great deal of material for the attorney and, thus, will be able to save on attorney fees.
Unlike our psps - who are not allowed to give legal advice, these independent attorneys are not only allowed but expected to give legal advice. That is the reason our members will contract with them.
SettlementCentral.Com's directory of independent personal injury attorneys is divided by states, since the laws covering injury claims vary from state to state. When the directory is fully populated, members will be able to select an attorney licensed to practice law in the state where the accident occurred, where the claim will be pursued. Some of these independent attorneys are available only for consultation, and others may also be hired for representation to resolve your claim. These attorneys are not employed by SettlementCentral.Com; we merely provide you with a list of competent attorneys plus we offer you discounted rates for those times when you feel the need for legal assistance.
